Emptiness fills my mind.
A void replaces my thoughts.
Shelled out of everything I have
My heart shuts down.
My eyes turn vacant, keeping people away.
The smile that used to be on my face fades.
My fingers dig into my palm but I feel no pain.
I’m curled up deep inside
in a darkness that no on can find.
This is better than feeling endless fear or sadness.
For a while, it distracts me.
But this numbness scares me.
There’s no end to this void.
Not a sound or a ray of light enters this prison.
I’ve locked up . . . myself.
